Happy Thursday MTG peeps,
Tonight at our local gaming store, OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario is Commander Night, if you are into playing this constructed format, then ring up your local store to confirm if they have a gaming group. In related news, there has been a social media trend in the MTG Gaming Community to post Commander Selfies so don't be shy and join on in.
Anywhoos - a bit of a hodge-podge post of miscellaneous Magic: the Gathering news today so strap in and lets go -
Upcoming Friday Night Magic Promos were posted on the mothersite this morning for September through November 2014. These are all decent cards which have seen play - if you don't have these, check out MTG Mint Card. We are especially enjoying the juicy / icky alternate art for Brain Maggot -

PAX Prime is just over 8 days away in Seattle, WA Aug 29-Sep 1, 2014. Look for Wizards of the Coast at Booth 1642 on the floor. The Annual PAX Magic: the Gathering Party will be likely taking place Saturday Night. In the past, the party where multiple fall set spoilers are provided was typically at the ShowBox but so far, the venue is unconfirmed.
The Big Event this weekend is the Magic: The Gathering World Building Panel on Sunday 8/31 1:30PM - 2:30PM at the Hedgehog Theatre - here's the blurb -
Come meet the team behind the creation of new worlds for Magic: The Gathering as they give you an exclusive look at the up-coming fall Magic set, Khans of Tarkir. You will find out all about the five warring clans on Tarkir, and how Dragons have influenced this world’s culture long after their extinction. This will be your chance to get a glimpse of that world before anyone else, presented by the people who made it!~
Lastly, just some eye candy - Ultra PRO MTG Pro Tour Qualifier Top 8 playmats featuring arts from the upcoming Khans of Tarkir set -
